EAT has a good reputation, and from the number of tourists it is clear that it is written up in several guidebooks. So my wife and I went there for breakfast one recent weekend. I ordered a ham-and-cheese croissant and my wife a bread basket. I had coffee and she had an orange juice. The croissant was stale, probably a... More

I was told i must go to Zabar's for a hot pastrami sandwich. maps.googlescum offered 2 locations and I chose the closer one. Unfortunately, it was really "E.A.T. (owned by Eli Zabar)" but but not listed as such by googlescum. There is no pastrami at E.A.T.: THIS IS NOT ZABAR'S. In fact, after I entered this restaurant, I was greeted... More

Popular deli with a wide range of home cooked and freshly baked foods and pastries. Very busy with take out and dinning service. Food is very good quality and friendly service. Freshly made granola and breads with good coffee and wide range of deli items.

Walked by this place and from the outside you could see a lot of fresh treats to eat. I got my wife a massive macaroon from there and my son a st patricks day cookie. It cost $13 so not the cheapest but it was very good. They have a sitting area so you can eat a full meal and... More

The food was pretty standard and the prices expensive. Couldn't complain about the service but it quite simply wasn't worth what we paid.

Make sure your credit card is in good standing when you go to EAT; it's expensive ! We stopped in for lunch and we were afflicted by sticker shock, or should I say menu shock. I'm not really sure why we stayed after seeing the menu but we did. Sandwiches ranged from about $22 to $28. A grilled cheese sandwich... More

This is a great place to eat before or after a visit to the nearby Met Museum. You enter and walk through the retail section where you can buy Eli Zabar's fabulous breads and rolls, prepared foods, produce, and other products to go, and turn right to get to the Café where there is waiter service. The menu includes delicious... More

It was never going to be cheap! The upper east side is New York's Mayfair so the question is really was it any good? Well they got the order wrong, but otherwise the service was quick. The basic coffee was adequate and there were 2 1/2 cups in the $5 pot so it wasn't bad value for money. The sandwich... More

Why is this one of the very few upper east side options serving relatively fresh, relatively decent food for breakfast. Do the richest people in the world really not care that much about what they put in their mouths. For God's sake in London we are so spoilt. Burford Brown eggs everywhere ,Ottolengi, Daylesford, Cecconis ,the Wolseley , the list... More

We had charcuterie and veggie frittata - all prepared fresh and oh so delicious but with a couple of drinks, our bill went over 110$ so be warned! However if your like food, don't miss out because you know love once!

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
